Seton Hall wins overtime battle with St. John’s

New York, N.Y. – In one of the most tightly contested games of the season, the Seton Hall men’s basketball team edged the St. John’s Red Storm on Saturday afternoon inside Madison Square Garden, 81-74, in overtime. Khadeen Carrington ran down the court and finished the contest off with a dunk with five seconds remaining in the extra period. A sight not normally seen from the 6-foot, 4-inch guard, it was a fittingly unusual way to end...

The Big East, built on basketball, is as strong as ever

When Dave Gavitt, the Big East Conference founding commissioner, died in September 2011, the conference he had constructed so masterfully was perceived to poetically be saying goodbye with him. With the departure of three pioneer members of the conference in Syracuse, Connecticut, and Pittsburgh, no longer would Orange, Huskies or Panthers run rampant through the streets of New York City in the middle of every March. The truth is the...

SHU at its best with coaches’ help

The final whistle blew with the Seton Hall women’s basketball team 70-65 winners over Georgetown on Jan. 14; it was the team’s eighth game in 18 days. Students were preparing to start classes for the spring semester that upcoming Wednesday and the team had not gotten a formal practice in since the second-to-last day of final exams during the fall semester. The team had pulled itself out from a 0-3 start to conference play, but was...

No. 1 Wildcats wear down Pirates behind hot-shooting Spellman

The Seton Hall men’s basketball team held on with the No. 1 team in the nation for two thirds of the game on Sunday afternoon in the Wells Fargo Center, but lost its point guard and edge momentarily and did not recover, falling to the Villanova Wildcats by a score of 92-76. Fans decked in Pirate blue, imitating the glory day uniforms worn by the Pirates, packed the five rows behind the Seton Hall bench in an arena that saw fans dress...

Carrying a legacy: The man in the middle of Seton Hall’s flag man tradition

“19, 20, 21”: those are the magical numbers that Seton Hall junior Chris Beasley – better known to some as flag man – hopes to hear from public address announcer Tim McLoone before Beasley’s time on the Prudential Center court is up. He has had the honor of racing the 20-foot Seton Hall flag during a second-half timeout of men’s basketball games for a year-and-a-half, and has that same amount of time remaining to write his name into...

The seal superstition is contradictory to SHU’s mission

Seton Hall University is Catholic to its core. In 2017 – for the third consecutive year – the school that was the best university for Christmas celebration. Every year, rain or shine, students gather around the large 60-foot Norway Spruce tree on the Green and wait to see the rainbow of 43,000 lights brighten the spirit of a student body worn down by final exams. I could point to several other examples of the impact that faith has on...

Athletes competing in extreme heat cannot be overlooked

On Jan. 18 and 19, temperatures in Melbourne, where the Australian Open is currently taking place, spiked at 104 degrees. An unforgiving heat wave brought about conditions that left even the best conditioned players physically drained and dangerously flirting with heat stroke. The reality is, when temperatures reach those levels, any type of athletic activity – especially one competed on a heat-absorbing surface like a concrete...

Donnaizha Fountain parts ways with Seton Hall

The Seton Hall women’s basketball team announced last week that its leader this season in minutes, points and rebounds, Donnaizha Fountain, will no longer be a part of the program. The shocking news came on the heels of Seton Hall’s grudge-match with St. John’s on Jan. 21 in Walsh Gymnasium. However, the team had known about Fountain’s departure since the middle of last week. Seton Hall went on to win their first game without...

Seton Hall climbs back from double-digit deficit to win Big East opener

No. 23 Seton Hall men’s basketball trailed for 32 of 40 minutes on Thursday, trailing by as many as 13 points, but in the end, showed its resiliency as it prevailed over No. 25 Creighton 90-84 in the team’s Big East opener. Each team experienced one of its star guards check out early in the first half. First, it was Khadeen Carrington, who went to the locker room just minutes into the game with a twisted ankle but returned...

The violation has not specifically been outlined, nor has the timetable for when the senior will return. Nevertheless, coach Kevin Willard stated in the release that Sanogo will return once...

Second-half Rutgers run turns one-possession game into blowout loss

The Seton Hall women’s basketball team fell in, ultimately, resounding 70-45 fashion to Rutgers on Friday afternoon in Piscataway, N.J. The final score is deceiving in regards to how the game played out for much of the way, with the two teams separated by one possession for most of the first three quarters. It was not Seton Hall’s best game of the season, as JaQuan Jackson failed to score in the first half, shooting 0-for-3 from...

Special face in the crowd for walk-on Shavar Reynolds

What was left of the opening-night crowd at the Prudential Center on Nov. 10 let out a half-enthusiastic roar when Jordan Walker hit a three-pointer to give Seton Hall an 86-63 lead with 3:10 remaining. The game had been decided and the outcome of the final few minutes seemed fairly insignificant. That was not the case for walk-on guard Shavar Reynolds, who got the call soon after that to check in for the first time in his Division I...
